2. Once downloaded, either open the zip file or unzip it and place the ‘system.dll’ file into one of the following directories depending on the version of Windows 7 being used, which would be either 32 or 64 bit.
x86 Directory Path = C:\Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure\Virtual Infrastructure Client\Launcher\Lib
Note: If the ‘Lib directory does not exist, create it within the ‘Launcher’ directory.
3. Edit the VpxClient.exe.config file which is located in the ‘Launcher’ directory, making the changes as outlined below and as seen in the image.
Once the file has been edited, save the changes and close the file.
Note: If you receive a warning stating you cannot save the file, either reboot the computer or ensure that any VMware related software is closed and try again. If this doesn’t work then copy the file out of the “Launcher” directory, edit it, save it and then copy the file over the original one.
4. Next, edit the system properties of your machine. This can be achieved by right clicking on ’Computer’ (was usually known as ‘My Computer’ in older Microsoft OS versions) and selecting ’Properties’. Select ‘Advanced System Settings’
5. Select the ‘Environment Variables’ button
6. Add a new System variable. To do this, click ‘New...’ and add the following details.
Note: Depending on the Windows 7 OS version will depend on which Variable is required. Ensure the same path is used as per step 2.
Variable name = DEVPATH Variable value (x86) = C:\Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure\Virtual Infrastructure Client\Launcher\Lib Variable value (x64) = C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\Infrastructure\Virtual Infrastructure Client\Launcher\Lib
